The Ripclear story begins in 2014, when co-founder Ryan Doherty destroyed his third snow goggle lens of the season from MT Bachelor rime ice. So he contacted his best friend and product designer extraordinaire, co-founder Zach Hines. They did a Google / Amazon / Patent search for something (anything!) that could prevent expensive goggles from scratching and nothing of the sort existed!
That launched Ripclear!
